I'm afraid I miss your point.
I'm still asking myself how to mourn Chokwe, which is one thing Rosa Clemente said we must do. I had the honor of speaking to him on the phone several times for WBAI and KPFA and I didn't think there was a more profound or effective leader anywhere in the world.

Thirty-six months???? That is three years. Who would not go out of their freakin' mind???
Why then hasn't Salva Kiir alleged that, instead of alleging that they plotted a coup which there is no evidence for?
The position of the U.S., after announcing that there is no evidence to support Salva Kiir's story, is very hard to defend, but the U.S. doesn't feel much obligation to defend its positions.
Of course they have conflicts. Wherever there is preferential treatment of one ethnicity over another, there is conflict. In this case Salva Kiir was under pressure to dissolve his private army, the presidential guard that so many African heads of state seem to have, so he started dismissing only the Nuer soldiers. Mahmood Mamdani explained that in his Uganda Monitor essay, "The Way Forward," published in the Daily Monitor and in Aljazeera, http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2014/01/....
